Truth is Stranger

Bob Uecker stalker gets warning at Brewers game.

That's not a typo.

Bob Uecker stalker gets warning at Brewers game.

The baseball team notified the Phoenix police that Ann E. Ladd was at Monday's game, Police Sgt. Joel Tranter said Tuesday. A restraining order issued in September bars Ladd from games Uecker is announcing and requires her to stay at least 500 feet away from him.

The 73-year-old Uecker has said Ladd stalked him for six or seven years, seeking his autograph, sending him unwanted gifts and appearing at ballparks and hotels where he was staying.

Ladd, 45, has described herself as a Brewers fan. Calls to her home in Prospect Heights, Ill., went unanswered Tuesday.

Allegedly, those unwanted gifts were copies of Major League II. Questions abound at Ms. Ladd's reason for the stalking - being a lifelong fan of the hapless Brewers, or Mr Belvedere. Next time, maybe she should shell out $7.49 and buy his autograph on ebay (with shipping!).

That picture is a little terrifying...in a "Uecker of the Corn" kind of way.
